GOURMET'S DIARY OF A FOODIE: SEASON TWO 2
 
 
THE PLOT THUS FAR

Taking you to great places to eat around the world, the second season of our award-winning public television series is even better than the first. Discover hidden culinary gems in Hong Kong, the artisanal spirit of New Zealand, how blogs have changed the way we think about food, and more.

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Diary of a Foodie” wants to be an exotic travelogue. It also wants to make food fun for a new generation. When it tries to merge the two efforts, we get this lackluster affair. If intentions were the backbone of good television, then everything could stay on the air. However, I find “Diary of a Foodie” lacking in its second. But, you don’t care. You just want food porn.

I used to be a monster fan of Food Network. However, they lost me along the way by continuining hyperfocus on singular aspects of culinary approaches. While I still love Paula Deen and Giada, there are way too many imitators in the kitchen. Whether this show is in India, North Carolina or Chile, the approach to cuisine never changes. All dishes are 5 thumbs up and nothing is ever bad. It’s like that episode of The Simpsons where Homer became a food critic.

The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty solid for a PBS broadcast. It’s just that you shouldn’t expect the Dolby track to really expand the back channels. But, what did you expect? In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.

RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW!
